MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Islamic State (Daesh) and al-Nusra Front terrorist groups shelled inhabited areas in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo, Damascus and Homs, a daily bulletin on the Russian Defense Ministry website said on Thursday.

"Within last 24 hours, terrorists have shelled al-Zahraa, al-Khalidiyah, Leramon, al-Nayrab, and al-Asad quarters in the Aleppo city, and Tell Jobegja inhabited area with improvised MLRS [multiple launch rocket systems] and mortars. Terrorists have also shelled following inhabited areas: Kabun, Haush al-Farah, Bahariyah, Huteita al-Jarash, Duma, and Abd Beinuri in the Damascus province, Abu Alayah and Tarfavi in the Homs province," the bulletin said.

Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. On February 27, a US-Russia brokered ceasefire came into force in Syria. Terrorist groups such as Islamic State (ISIL, also known as Daesh), as well as Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), both outlawed in Russia and a range of other states, are not part of the deal.
